The Cuban minister of foreign affairs Bruno Rodríguez reiterated that the government of the United States seeks pretexts to increase confrontation and intensify the economic, commercial and financial embargo imposed on the island for almost six decades.
It is a lie to say there have been deliberate acts against their diplomats in Cuba. There is not the slightest evidence or scientific explanation.
The United States manipulates for political purposes. It looks for pretexts to increase confrontation and intensify the embargo, as the official wrote on his Twitter account @BrunoRguezP.
The Government of Cuba assured that no evidence of acoustic or other attacks against US diplomats was found.
No possible authors have been identified, nor people with motivation, intention or means to execute this type of action, affirmed the Lieutenant Colonel, Roberto Hernández at a press conference offered in the Chancellery.
Moreover, the general director of Cuban Foreign Ministry for the United States, Carlos Fernández de Cossío, reiterated the island guarantees the safety of all people, including members of the diplomatic corps accredited here.
Fernández de Cossío said Cuba has not questioned whether there could be sick staff. The truth is that, from the investigations and existing evidence, nothing indicates the disease they may suffer or the symptoms reported are the result of their stay on the island.
Meanwhile, Mitchell Valdés, director of the Neurosciences Center of Cuba, summarized the work done by the committee of Cuban experts and the Academy of Sciences of the island on the alleged incidents of health reported by United States diplomats.
Washington insists on using the term attacks for the alleged health problems experienced by their diplomats, a position considered by Havana as part of the interest of the current administration in the White House in reversing the steps towards the bilateral approach given during the management of Barack Obama.
